The sedan was earlier speculated to come in August but latest reports suggest its launch during second week of July.

The brand new A3 saloon is touted to be the cheapest offering by the leading car maker in India. With this launch, the Indian customers will also have the opportunity to use the luxury compact sedan segment that was so far absent from the Indian markets.

Insiders say if the product receives good response from the Indian customers, this could open doors for more such vehicles in domestic market from various auto makers.

Thumbs up:  The new Audi A3 Saloon has strong, efficient engines. If you keep the standard Sport suspension aside, the new car strikes a fine balance between comfort and control. With a beautifully built-in Cabin, the sedan will offer you enough space for four and a good-sized boot.

Thumbs down: The new sedan will cost you more than the A3 Sportback (on which it’s based). This may discourage many customers to opt out for the new A3 Saloon.
